Once every three years or so, we see two full Moons in a row in the same sign. [Read more about Blue Moons, here]. The last time we had two Aquarius full Moons in a row was August 1983. With this second full Moon of the month in Aquarius on August 20, it's round two of the contest to remain emotionally objective in all situations. Take the high road!

During full Moons, the tides of emotion and passion are at their peak. But Aquarian Moons aren't known for unbounded emotional displays, instead preferring a more cautious and reserved approach to self-expression.

Even if dramatic displays of affection are not on the menu, being true to yourself is. You may find your desire to be authentic in conflict with your desire for applause. Sometimes it may seem easier to take the safe route and please the crowd. But two Aquarian full Moons in a row are a reminder to dance to your own drumbeat -- regardless of what others may say about it.

-- The Farmer's Almanac calls the full Moon in August the Sturgeon Moon, after the main catch of the season in lakes of the northeastern U.S. Today we might call it the back-to-school Moon, when we prepare to start our new autumn ventures.

-- The full Moon falls in the 29th degree of Aquarius, which is symbolized by a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. What you learn now may bring you to a new level of awareness.

-- The Moon is in the 26th Lunar Mansion, which in medieval times was auspicious for all acts of love, sensuality and pleasure.

The Moon is full at 6:44 pm PDT on Tuesday, August 20. At sunset, when the full Moon rises in the east opposite the Sun, it may appear reddish and little larger than usual. Mark your calendar to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous, glowing orb!
